Biography

Nicolas Dauphas is Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of the Geophysical Sciences and the Enrico Fermi Institute. After attending École Nationale Supérieure de Géologie (Nancy, France), he received a PhD in geochemistry in 2002 from the Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques. A member of the University of Chicago faculty since 2004, he was the first to discover planetary scale nucleosynthetic anomalies for a refractory element and to recognize Mars as a planetary embryo. His research interests include cosmochemistry, geochronology, and non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry. His recent work has centered on the use of NRIXS spectroscopy to understand redox and structural controls on the iron isotopic compositions of magmas. He received numerous awards, including a Packard fellowship, the Nier prize, the Houtermans and Macelwane medals. He has authored some 70 scientific publications.
